Chaos has bid farewell to Joshua “steel” Nissan as the former CS:GO in-game leader has been signed to 100 Thieves. This news comes just days after the 30-year-old was reported to be leaving Counter-Strike to pursue a future in VALORANT.
He’ll be joining two other former Counter-Strike professionals in the form of Nick “nitr0” Cannella and Spencer “Hiko” Martin. nitr0 was the most recent to make the swap after departing Team Liquid and being a part of this new revamping of the 100 Thieves roster.
steel played for a plethora of teams during his time in Counter-Strike to include iBuyPower, Team Dignitas, Ghost, Chaos. iBuyPower would be where things went south as he was one of several members of the team who were part of a match-fixing scandal that resulted in his permanent ban from Valve sponsored events. Up until July 2017 when ESL revealed they would allow it, he and the other players found guilty of match-fixing were also unable to play in many other events.
Chaos has hit the top 20 in the HLTV rankings for the first time after a recent run of success over the past few months and seems like steel has decided this is his time to leave and pursue a new opportunity with 100 Thieves in VALORANT.
